<<a famous Judge (i forget which) said that the [criminal justice ] system is set-up under the principle that it's better to let ten guilty men go free than to execute one innocent. And that's as it should be.

No doubt the famous judge was speaking metaphorically, since the justice system is designed to parse reality with much closer scrutiny than that as a standard.

However, I'd believe that for every thief or person who assaults someone and is convicted, they probably did that to at least ten other people and didn't get caught.
